Celtic can land their next Dembele with Ryan Mmaee transfer

Celtic have cashed in on a number of big-name players over recent years such as Odsonne Edouard, Kristoffer Ajer and Kieran Tierney among others.

One other player the Hoops sold for a significant sum of money in recent memory is Moussa Dembele.

First up in this Celtic transfer quiz, which club did Celtic sign Christopher Jullien from?

Signed from Fulham as a free agent back in 2016, the Frenchman went on to make 94 appearances for the Parkhead club across all competitions where he scored 51 goals and delivered 18 assists.

In 2018, the striker then joined Olympique Lyon in a deal worth a reported fee of £20m where he has since gone on to score 67 goals in 144 appearances.

Even though Celtic had no issues when it came to scoring goals throughout their latest SPFL season, it seems as though the upcoming summer transfer window could give Ange Postecoglou the chance to seal the next version of Dembele at Celtic Park.

Last month, it was reported that Celtic have set their sights on securing a deal for Ferencvaros striker Ryan Mmaee.

Throughout his debut season with the Hungarian club since joining from AEL Limassol last summer, the 24-year-old scored 19 goals and delivered 11 assists in 37 appearances.

This shows just how much of a consistent goal threat he can be in the same way that Dembele was during his time in Glasgow.

This also backs up why he was described as being “prolific” for Ferencvaros by journalist Maher Mezahi on Twitter.

With 141 senior club appearances to his name, the Morocco international has racked up a total of 74 goal contributions with 49 scored and 25 assisted.

Taking into account how Dembele ended his latest season in France with an average of 2.9 shots per game in the league, higher than any of his teammates, this highlights the attacking prowess he and Mmaee share.

With the Hoops not only setting out to regain their SPFL title but also going as far as they can in Europe next term, adding some extra attacking reinforcements to Postecoglou’s squad may not be a bad idea.

With that in mind, securing a deal for the Ferencvaros hotshot, who has some experience of playing on the European stage, could be a great move for the Parkhead club, especially if he goes on to replicate the same sort of goalscoring record that Dembele had there.
